Fuelling Manchester #5 – May 2011
Carbon Co-op have been collaborating with Kindling Trust to run a series of networking sessions for community renewables in Greater Manchester entitled, Fuelling Manchester. The events are purely social and the next one takes place on Thursday 26th May 2011.
This fifth gathering is for all those of us involved in community renewable projects, be that: water turbine co-operatives; bio-mass and woodland management enterprises; waste-to-energy projects, solar energy collectives or those involved in community-focused.
We will be meeting at the Bulls Head Pub (on London Road in Manchester City Centre) for early evening drinks. There will be no agenda and no structure to the evening except we will be having a-go-around to introduce each other to our work. The evening is simply an opportunity to meet with like-minded individuals and complimentary projects from across Greater Manchester and beyond.
Some of the projects who have been invited include: Greater Manchester Tree Station; Torrs Hydro; Energy Savings Trust; Fairfield Materials Management; MERCi, GMCVO; URBED; Co-ops UK.
If you are interested in attending please get in touch or just turn up.
Lots of Community Energy groups want to get involved in energy efficiency but don't know where to start - we're running a day long conference with Community Energy England with some leading experts in the sector to get people up to speed.
